ALFI’s response to CESR’s consultation on the guide to clear language and layout for the key investor information document (KII) (Ref. CESR/10-532)

The Key Investor Information document is a radical attempt to address these shortcomings. Although CESR does not believe there is a single right way to write and design a KID, its guide is intended to help to craft a KID by giving pointers to widely-accepted good practice. Please click here.
